The toile, created by Jacques Fernan, is a lovely composition of caricatures of oriental characters.
It was Charles Burger who came upon 4 drawings from the XVIIIth century with caricatures of oriental characters and who then asked his friend Jacques Fernan, a painter and engraver member of the Société des Artistes Français in 1893, to create the design of this toile using those drawings. Jacques Fernan not only created the design of this toile but also a new printing technique using 3 copper rollers (one for the design, one for the background and the last one for the ‘mordants’). Unfortunately this 3 roller technique is too complicated for the machines used today, therefore only one roller, the design one, is used.
